Efrath Bouana, an emerging artist and internationally renowned painter, draws her inspiration from her travels, environment, and the people around her. Born in Israel in 1986, Bouana has enriched her artistic journey in Paris, Barcelona, and Haifa. A graduate of the Beaux-Arts in Paris and holding a master's degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Haifa, she explores notions of identity, culture, and human experience through her works.

Her first solo exhibition, "Solitary Architecture," took place in 2008, marking the beginning of a career punctuated by solo, duo, and group exhibitions in France, Armenia, Iceland, Israel, and Italy. Her artistic expression transcends the boundaries of painting to encompass performance, installations, and music-painting.

Often described as expressionist, her pictorial style reveals the twists and turns of her personal journey, exploring concepts of home and displacement. Alongside her work as a painter, Bouana engages in various musical collaborations, notably with musician Antonina Zarhava and the group Musica'vestys. She has also contributed to three published works, including "Hjalteyri" and "Le Contre Annuaire."

Through her canvases, Bouana delivers a visually stunning and emotionally powerful experience, where the influence of music, rhythm, and movement is palpable. Additionally, she has participated in group exhibitions in prestigious galleries such as Gallery 59 Rivoli in Paris, Maison des Ensembles in Paris, Teddy Gallery in Jerusalem, Hanina Gallery in Tel Aviv, and Shaar 3 in Haifa.
